sure (your house) is what you want."
According toslast year's Off-Cam-
pus Housing survey, the average
monthly rent for a four-bedroom
unit was $1,942.
The survey also said that rent
decreased 0.3 percent last year,
compared to the 2001-2002 aca-
demic year, where rental rates
increased 4.4 percent. Housing rec-
ommends that students do not sign
leases prior to Oct. 27.
LSA senior Andrea Hunwick said
co-op housing vendors also experi-
enced increased traffic this year.
"People have had a surprisingly
positive interest," she said. Hun-
wick added that the draw of cooper-
ative living is the diverse group of
people involved and the larger co-
op community students can become
a part of.
"We do a lot of activities together,
have holiday dinners together and
even play pranks on other co-op
houses," she said.
Off-Campus Housing advisor
Melissa Goldstein said she was very
pleased with the event's turnout and
added that the Housing Fair is an
important tool in informing students
about their housing options.
"Students sign their leases really
early here, and they don't always
know that their contracts are bind-
ing," she said.
Housing also offers services to
check leases and has records of 550
reputable landlords. They also offer
mediation services to ameliorate
roommate problems throughout the

tion on the state of the program.
"I don't think they've actively decid-
ed," he said, adding that he hoped
Courant took the feedback seriously.
Richard Gull, a philosophy profes-
sor at the University's Flint campus,
added that he wasn't
sure if the University Universit
is letting the program

me," Gull said.r
Other faculty year from
members added that in 1995.
for professors going if
abroad, the program
offered advice on what immunizations
and medicines needed to be taken
before the trip.
Courant said that he would look into
providing that service through the Uni-
versity's other plans.
Courant also took questions about
the proposed new health insurance
policies, which would implement a
premium-sharing model for all fac-
ulty and staff. Until this year, Uni-
versity employees paid less than 10
percent of premiums for themselves
and their dependents. But University
health insurance costs rose to $170
million this year from $80 million in
1995. Under new recommendations
made by a committee of professors,
employees could now be paying on
average around 15 percent of premi-
ums. The regents and executive offi-
cers expect to receive a final plan in
SACUA members made few com-
ments regarding the new policy due to
lack of knowledge but went into closed
executive session after the public meet-
ing to discuss the
about the premi-
ums will remain

time to digest
Ann Arbor Muslims offer special prayers during the month of Ramadan at the
Islamic Center on Plymouth Road last night.
But chemistry Prof. Roseanne Sen-
sion, a faculty member for 12 years,
said although she is still not familiar
with the details of the new policy, she
does not think insurance premium
sharing seemed unreasonable.
"The increase to faculty has been
incredibly small," Sension said.
But political science Prof. Mika
Lavaque-Manty added that while he
sympathizes with the University's high
costs, he thought the burden should be
scattered more fairly according to
"Faculty can more easily afford pre-
mium sharing than GSIs and staff,"

deeds and avoid bad ones."
"It's a lot about patience and self
restraint on all levels," LSA senior
Halim Naeem said. "You have to put
God before your own desires."
Because Ramadan is one of Islam's
five pillars, all Muslims are required to
observe it, which fosters a sense of
unity. Muslims break fast, attend special
prayer and celebrate the end of
Ramadan as a community.
"When the sun sets, it is a blessing to
eat together and feed each other,"
Naeem said. "This is when we experi-
ence a lot of camaraderie, brotherhood
There is an additional special prayer
after the usual nighttime prayer. Each
night of Ramadan this year, hundreds of
Muslims will gather at the Ann Arbor
In light of doing good deeds, altru-
ism is another important principle
that is especially obeyed during
"We believe our good deeds are worth
more this month," Syed said.
MSA is holding a series of events in
honor of Ramadan and its call for out-
reach and philanthropy.
"This is a time when the mosques all
over the world are very open and people
can go, ask questions and learn about
Islam' said Rackham student and MSA
President Omar Khalil.
MSA is also hosting "Fastathon" on
Nov. 13. Each local business that partici-
pates will donate $1 for every person
who participates in Fastathon. All the
money raised will go to the Ann Arbor
"Later, we will have people come and
talk about what they felt when there
were fasting and what they thought of
the experience," Khalil said. "It's for

enough accountability is placed on
universities for the rising costs.
U.S. Rep. John Boehner (R-
Ohio), chairman of the House Edu-
cation and the Workforce
Committee, said "extravagant
spending" on the universities' part
contribute to the rising tuition.
But Courant said that a $36 mil-

State Rep. Jacob Hoogendyk (R-
Kalamazoo), who sits on the House
Higher Education Appropriations
Subcommittee, said the government
has the responsibility to ensure that
public funds are used properly.
"While I believe in the free mar-
ket and that the market should
decide the right cost of tuition, in
the case of public institutions that
are heavily subsidized by taxpayers,
we have to encourage accountabili-
ty," Hoogendyk said.
